About

The Metropolitan Award
Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The Metropolitan Award is presented annually to a citizen of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Community who has exhibited exponential effort toward improving the lives of our citizens, and who has made significant contributions toward the unification of our community. These efforts take place within both the business and social worlds and are indicative of the devotion and dedication that the award recipient holds towards others. 
 
An annual dinner is held at The Metropolitan Club in the citizen’s honor. Corporate and Private entities and attendees are asked to contribute to the dinner through both monetary efforts and volunteer efforts. The Metropolitan Club proudly supports local organizations sharing our philanthropic efforts to give back to our community. Over $1 million has been given to charitable organizations over the past 22 years.
